TFTNT.

I'm excited that Ewan is working with Nicholas Hoult. I am laughing at the fact that he's working with Ewen Bremner and Stanley Tucci AGAIN.

It might have been a little premature for this thread, but I figured it's good to have a place for news as it rolls in.

I love Stanley Tucci. I'm glad he and Ewan are working together again.

Threads are never too premature.

I like Stanley, too. I still quote Stanley's dentist lines from ALLO.

I don't remember any of his lines. It's been so long.

Hopefully Ewan will do a lot of press for this film after he finishes with The Impossible press tour stuff.

He mostly said it's hard to find a husband in LA let alone a good dentist.

Ewan is going to be exhausted.

True about the dentist. I can't speak to the husband part.

Ewan seems to work constantly. I hope he sneaks a little vacation time somewhere in there.

New trailer

I like the part where Ewan is rolled up. Reminded me of Han, Chewie and Luke in ROTJ.

YUM

He was pimping the new trailer on twitter:

Here's the new trailer for 'Jack'. Looking good. Look better in 3D at IMAX. Yeehaw!! Jack the Giant Slayer - Movie Trailers - iTunes

Fairytales on the Big Screen, Jack the Giant Slayer Trailer Unveiled
It's been three years in the making and has changed form quite a bit in that time, but finally the trailer for Jack the Giant Slayer has been released, and it looks amazing!
With an incredible array of British stars including Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor and Eleanor Tomlinson (who you may not know yet, but will soon) appearing in the film, the very foundations of the movie already seem promising. Plus, Bryan Singer is directing which is another great sign. He's the man behind X-Men, X2 and X-Men: First Class, so when it comes to heroes and villains he knows what he's doing. Fundamentally a re-envisioning of the classic fairytale, Jack and the Bean Stalk has plenty of those polemical characters, and the giants do look truly grotesque.
Singer spoke to Total Film earlier this year and said: "It's a very traditional fairytale, probably the most traditional thing I've ever done. But it'll also be a fun twist on the notion of how these tales are told," he said. "There might be some scary moments. The giants do like to eat people. There's a little of that. They're giants, you know? It's what they do!"
By the looks of the trailer, at best it'll be Stardust, and at worst Snow White and the Huntsmen: the potential is great but it's always risky to mess with the classics. Now we'll just have to wait and see the finish product to give our final verdict. The release date is currently set for March 1st 2013.

And here's the YouTube version for good measure:

I like Ewan and sushi is good, so yum at the combo.

I hope the movie is good and Bryan Singer doesn't disappoint.

Once upon a time Bryan Singer never disappointed... and then Superman happened.

I'm hoping this is better than that.
